Philadelphia Cultural Fund Announces New Youth Arts Engagement Grants Program
Deadline: April 2, 2010
The Philadelphia Cultural Fund has announced the Youth Arts Engagement Grants program, a new initiative to support projects and programs that use the arts to enrich the lives of young people.
These project-related grants will support specific programs that use the arts to enrich the lives of young people between the ages of 5 and 18, in and out of school. To apply, an organization must be a 2010 recipient of PCF general operating support and have a budget in excess of $50,000.
The goals of the Youth Arts Engagement Grants include providing high-quality arts instruction, training, and participatory experiences that serve those young who are unlikely to have access to cultural enrichment; providing consistent programming that directly impacts the reduction of youth violence, truancy, and drop-out rates while increasing the number of graduations and college-bound students; and encouraging arts and cultural programming as an alternative activity for youth in afterschool, weekend, and summer programs.
A total of $350,000 in grants ranging from $25,000 to $50,000 each will be awarded.
Visit the the PCF Web site for complete guidelines.
